I saw this really cute idea last year on Positively Splendid website and had the thought that it was cute. This year she redid it and I decided it didn't look to bad and I should try it. We found the big pots at Lowe's and basically followed her directions. We sprayed them first with Thompson's Water Seal spray and then went to work painting them the colors that I picked out. They turned out pretty cute, but I would probably pick different colors if I did it again.
Lets just hope that we can keep them alive for the rest of the summer.
